Hi There!

Welcome to my blog. I set up my Folksy shop in September 2010 selling revamped & recycled button jewellery - take a look www.folksy.com/shops/mamphii. I also have some of my vintage rings in "Daisy & Lola's", a great vintage shop in Norwich and sell at Clutter City Markets at the Norwich Arts Centre.

A Night of Firework Fun!

My son & I decided not to go to a busy wet bonfire night - opting to stay at home in the warm, with sparklers in the garden and watching the fireworks from the comfort of our living room and keeping our slightly neurotic cat company. I have had a most productive night making rings, hair slides, lots of ear studs, pendants and brooches. I'm pretty happy with some Union Jack button hair slides. I'll post the photos in the morning. Happy Bonfire night! x

A friend commissioned some jewellery for a relative's birthday - after particularly admiring a black & white pendant I often wear to work.

More brooch designs

A couple more ideas for brooches, I'm really liking the pink & purple one.

New brooch designs

pretty in pink
pretty in teal
Have been busy making brooches today - using coconut shell buckles ( from Textilegarden) with pretty cabochons and buttons . I've decided I'm going to keep the round one for myself & will probably be wearing it on my cardigan to work tomorrow.
all mine!!
